It is rare for hard a hitting investigative piece to cast a light on something of importance in Canadian media. The law is stacked against the truth coming to light, independent media budgets are low, and the majority of media is corporate owned. We discuss the excellent work that the Ottawa Citizen is doing to bring accountability to military intelligence (yep, it’s confirmed, they spied on BLM protesters) and the media outlets that we can turn to for great coverage and analysis.
Then, we discuss the unfolding horrors in Israel/Palestine. We’re only two days into what could likely become a much more significant conflict in the coming days, with the military might wreaking devastation and brutality on the Palestinian people. When will this cycle of violence end?
